However, as nice as their effort is, it looks cold and typical BBC like.
CNN Today is the brighter, friendlier, faster paced and warmer show. (even if it comes from Atlanta). Not to mention CNN Today and far better incomparable presenters.

What a mess of a show. The titles look nice, that's about it.
You wouldn't find Andrew Stevens holding an autocue scroller, either.
Contrary to what you might think, it's actually quite common - especially in local news, where budgets are lower. Bear in mind the Singapore operation of BBC News is budget constrained, as is the whole BBC - it's not got the money of the massive commercial operation that is CNN. That's one less staff member to pay.
But it's not all a question of money - newsreaders on the German Tagesschau always control their own teleprompter (although via means of a foot pedal). Just this morning I was watching the 9.00am news summary and the newsreader was obviously having issues with her pedal and buttons which led to a several awkward silent seconds!
Admittedly, the autocue controller Rico has been holding seems to be absolutely massive. Surely they can get a smaller gizmo!
